    That's roughly 25-40% of the pace he actually goes at. Like the Omar Henry session, this is just play for the cameras.

    that is still very godly for a 40+ year old man. 30 min of non stop sparring at a pretty decent speed.

    That's not godly at all. I can spar at that pace all day and I'm not a professional athlete. He and I are almost the same age.

    Yessir. If you search youtube and find the smaller clips that are maybe a minute or 30 secs long, they're at his normal intensity.

    Don't believe what? He's 1 year older than me IIRC.

    Ya without nonverbal queue I don't know what's happening. I can't tell if you are poking fun at my age or if you don't train in a striking art and are asking a serious question about sparring sessions.

    MT/MMA/TMA sparring are usually in 2 types of classes. One is after the regular class, the "advanced" students stick around and get in maybe half an hour. The other is a usually friday or saturday class where you just warm up for a few minutes then spar until people decide to leave, switching partners every few minutes. That's usually ~90 or 120 minutes on the mats or open gym floor.

    You don't usually do that in boxing, because you're usually in the ring. So you'll do maybe 15-30 minutes of sparring in the ring with coaches, and then another pair will get in.

    Or if you're making fun of my age, screw you :) and I haven't noticeably lost any max cardio since I started training as a teenager. I have to put more effort into it, but I can still do back to back classes.

    Hope at least some of that covered whatever we're talking about.

    He's a shit-talker and a show-boater, if that's what you're referring to.

    Maidana gave both Floyd and Broner lots of problems in the fights. But it disturbes me somewhat to see how those guys are seemingly going full force in sparring and still can't do nothing to Floyd and Broner (who are not going full force at all). I'd expect it to be at least a little more competitive.

    yeah i agree. i mean Floyd did turn up the heat in a few combinations at the end of each round. but it was notwhere near going full force.
